Bio and Links
Bio Photo ORVF has been a pioneer of online genealogy since 1997. Author and family historian A.David Distler created the website after his book titled "Ohio River Valley Families" was published in early 1997. ORVF was, and still is, a repository for many additions and corrections to the book.

The database is very comprehensive, remaining focused on related individuals, their ancestors and descendants, who once settled the Ohio River Valley. A few notables in this database are George W Bush and George H W Bush, Louis Capet (King Louis VII of France), Daniel Boone, Stephen Hopkins and Francis Cooke (of the Mayflower), Zachary Taylor, Dwight Eisenhower, Ulysses S Grant, Jefferson Davis, Virginia Katherine McMath (Ginger Rogers), Myra MayBelle Shirley (Belle Starr), James Madison, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin D Roosevelt and Richard Nixon.

Eli Henthorn
Headley Ridge Cemetery, Monroe County, Ohio
Was wondering if you could give me directions to the Headley Ridge Cemetery, Monroe County, Ohio. John & MAry (Gatts/Gates) Yoho are relatives of mine.

Vandolah correction
Francis Wayne VanDolah (Find A Grave Memorial# 6270831) is listed as being born in 1918, and his daughter born in 1924. Impossible.
Is the person listed as his daughter, perhaps his wife?

Ricer Family
There are some errors re. James Frederick "Fred" Ricer born 21 May 1917 in Monroe County, Ohio. His first wife was Ethel Florine Huffman. His second wife was Dorothy Irene Hooper.

I was searching for Hollands, Bracy's & Henthorns and I found them in small church Cem Mt Zion CHURCH OF CHRIST est 1853 between Ozark & Beallsville. I searched names and they are listed in Mt Zion Methodist church and the photo provided is hard to picture ( I don't see this view). I think there has been an error, I photo all and the church etc.
Can you research this, Please?

St Joseph's Roman Catholic CH Monroe CO ,Ohio,
As to Eleonora "Nora" Zwick # 40195318 her spouse is listed as Uriel P Zwick 1910-1959 #40179601, if you look at these Uriel is too young to be spouse and the Photo of Nora has a Peter Zwick on the Stone with her his dates are 1874-1961. There is no listing for a Peter Zwick (Maybe Uriel Peter Sr)with these dates, most likely Uriel (1910) is her son and Peter 1874 needs to be added.
